‘MATES’ Men’s Group -“Τα Φιλαρακια”

Meet the members of our new ‘Mates’ Men’s Group – “Τα Φιλαρακια”.


The group, which operates on alternate Mondays, fosters friendship and ‘parea’ by activities such as a day trip to the countryside, lunch with other senior citizens or visit a local attraction. Some of our previous outings have been to Mt Tamborine, the Carlton Brewery at Yatala and the SALT village at Kingscliff.

There is a small fee to cover transport and each person pays for his own lunch.

Enquiries may be directed to Rebecca Cominos on 0413 886 118.
